Hearty Beef Chili Recipe

A well-stocked pantry, full of versatile, useful ingredients means you’re always ready to whip up a healthy meal in a matter of minutes.

Whether stocking up on staples or avoiding the latest onslaught of snow, a prepared pantry will enable you to sustain your family throughout any weather.

One of the most resourceful ingredients in your pantry is corn oil. Its versatility extends to cooking, baking and sautéing. Good for your pantry and good for your heart, it contains plant sterols, which can help block cholesterol absorption in the body. In fact, corn oil contains 40 percent more plant sterols than canola oil and four times more than olive oil.

Using the following shopping list, you can create a variety of recipes, including Hearty Beef Chili, Vermicelli Pasta with Tomato Fideo Rojo Sabroso or Beef Vegetable Soup:

·        Mazola Corn Oil
·        Canned or frozen vegetables
·        Canned beans
·        Canned fruit (packed in juice or water)
·        Whole wheat pasta
·        Turkey or ground beef (frozen in cubes)
·        Broth (either beef, chicken, or veggie)
·        Spices or seasoning
·        Quinoa
·        Nuts

  1. I know what you mean about a stocked pantry we get snowed in now and again and there is nothing worse than not having something that you can count on to put together in a pinch. Chili's and stews are always great. I often will freeze pot roast leftovers 'just in case' for stews!

  2. I don't always have a fully stocked pantry but my freezer is always full of raspberries, rhubarb and zuchinni. We might not enjoy the meal but at least we won't starve.

  3. This sounds amazing! I like chilis that have more bulk to them and really give you a hearty meal.
